School Bus Safety

North Carolina Law gives the principal authority to suspend students from riding the school bus should they:

  • Engage in fighting, smoking, or using profanity.

  • Delay bus schedule.

  • Tamper with buses.

  • Refuse to meet the bus at a designated stop.

  • Get off the bus at the wrong stop while in route to or from school, when this has been forbidden.

  • Playing, throwing any object, or otherwise disturbing the driver's attention while on the bus.

  • Failure to observe safety rules and regulations.

  At school we will stress bus safety. We hope parents will remind their children of bus behavior standards.

  School authorities will try to solve bus misbehavior. However, when the misbehavior is flagrant and/or habitual, parents will be notified by phone or letter, and will be asked to correct the behavior. If these measures are not effective, the principal will suspend the child from riding the bus.
